The Jutta Vogel Foundation is a foundation under civil law based in Cologne. The aim of the foundation is the preservation of cultures in African deserts through the support of science and research and the protection of monuments and landscapes in these areas. This aim is realized through the financial support of:
- research on the history of cultures and landscapes in Africa’s desert areas
- documentations and publications in this field
- preservation and conservation of monuments and prehistoric sites in Africa
- measures to protect cultures and landscapes, e.g. the initialization and maintenance of protected areas and the training of respective specialists.
The foundation supports temporary research projects by offering financial means for personnel, material, and travel expenses. It grants printing cost subsidies for the documentation of the supported projects. The board of trustees and the management board supervise the foundation’s funding grants.
